Did you miss the Chappaqua PTA Spring Meeting?
Peter H. Johnston, an educational researcher and consultant to the CCSD, gave a presentation entitled "Opening Minds & Changing Lives." The ways we engage children in literacy and learning, and the language we choose in our interactions with them, influence many aspects of their development, including their social relationships, their intelligence, their self-regulation, and how they handle uncertainty and diversity. Dr. Johnston's talk demonstrated how apparently small changes in the ways we approach learning and language can change children’s persistence and their academic and social futures.
